Locals Know That Granny Rules
The Pinehurst/Aberdeen/Southern Pines area continues to be a draw for national chains, the latest addition being a Dunkin’ Donuts located — curiously, it seems — very close to a much beloved local doughnut shop known as Granny’s Donuts.
I have nothing against Dunkin’ Donuts; in fact, when I’m on the road, they have been a welcome location for a quick break.
Locally, though, and I hope our local citizens will agree and help out, it is Granny’s or nothing.
With all the available business locations in our area, one wonders why it was necessary to park the new shop a stone’s throw from such a successful local business.
We need to support our established local businesses or stop bemoaning the loss of our neighborhood shops of all types due to the marketing impact of large chains who choose to settle in our communities.
When you have a craving for a fresh cruller, or a chocolate glazed, or a great apple fritter, head for Granny’s!
